PRESS RELEASE

- Shatters previous memory frequency world record with custom-built liquid nitrogen cooled system -

FREMONT, California - November 22nd, 2011 - Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced that it has set a new world record with a memory frequency of 1733.8MHz (DDR3-3467) using Corsair Dominator® GT CMGTX6 extreme-performance DDR3 memory.

World champion overclocker and Corsair employee Jake "Planet" Crimmins set the new record at Corsair's laboratory with a custom-designed, liquid nitrogen cooled PC based on an AMD® FX-8150 processor and equipped with 1GB of Dominator GT extreme-performance DDR3 memory. The system was powered by a Corsair Professional SeriesTM Gold AX1200 fully modular power supply.

"Breaking overclocking world records requires skill, ingenuity, and the right equipment," said Jake Crimmins. "I've broken several records using Dominator GT memory. It's reliable, it has amazing headroom, and it's never let me down."
